This can be due to several things and usually its the last change you made. When you try to turn it on, do you see the fan moving on the power suppy (rear of computer) If this fan is not on I would suspect the powersupply. A power supply can give you a lighton the front and not supply enough power to start the computer.
Next i would remove the cover of the computer (usually two or three phillips screws on the back) and physically inspect all the cables and add-in cards and make sure they are all fully in thier sockets.
If you have added memory recently, a wrong voltage or speed could cause a non-booting system.
check these things and post again if this doesnt help .
These are only a couple steps , but the first steps you should take after trying to boot into safe mode unsuccessfully .
There will be more to check if this does not work, so dont rate untill we solve the issue..

Pull the power cord out and press the power button on the PC to drain the power for 10 seconds. Then plug the power cord back in and turn the computer on. If still does not work, then the power supply may be blown out and needs replacement.

Hp desktop power wont turn on

When you powered it on, does the power supply fan spinning? If not, then you might need to change the power supply. It may got the led light lit on, but it does not have enough power to turn on the entire computer.

Installing Windows XP on new drive in HP a220n

Your new hard drive has a name, like Seagate, Western Digtail, bla, bla... Go to the Mfg's web site for your drive. Download the bootable floppy disk manager setup utilities. If you have a floppy disk drive. If you don't have a floppy drive most Mfg's allow you to make a bootable CD. Lastly or maybe I should have mentioned this first. Make sure your drive is pinned out correctly. I'm only guessing you bought an IDE drive which has a jumper for setting the drive as a master or a slave or a master with a slave.

POST Beeps.

HP Beep codes are listed here: None of them matches your description, so listen again and see if the pattern matches any described by HP. Have you tried the monitor on another computer? Did you connect to the onboard graphics connector? Look for any loose components, especially memory.
